Mount Etna is roaring back again

Mount Etna, an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, is roaring back again.

And actually puffing away nicely.

The northeastern crater is currently exploding and releasing volcanic ash.

Since ashfall directly falls on the volcanic peak, the nearby airport of Catania is fully operational.

The seismographs placed around the volcano continue to record a gradual increase of the volcanic tremor amplitude.

Here a nice livecam showing that the Etna is currently puffing away nicely.

Although not really high, it is above average and is accompanied by an intense degassing and sporadic and weak ash emissions.

I can’t wait for the puff rings!
